Initially developed by the New York Hall of Science to establish a partnership with a local Boys and Girls Club, this four-week After School Framework designed for children between the ages of 8 to 12 highlights NISE Net activities, demos and programs and provides the children with a basic understanding and appreciation for nanoscale science concepts.
This conversation provides an introduction to NISE Net’s new Museum & Community Partnerships project, which will support efforts by Network partners to develop or improve existing partnerships with local community-based organizations. Through these partnerships, museums will be able to extend their reach to underserved audiences and help community organizations provide high-quality STEM learning experiences to their audiences. During the brown-bag, presenters introduce the project and walk through the eligibility and application process for the physical Explore Science kit.
This is a portable table-top bilingual (English/ Spanish) exhibition designed for outreach. The exhibition invites visitors to explore the secrets of nanotechnology in settings such as community fairs and science festivals. All components were designed and developed to be easily transportable and durable to withstand different kinds of environments. Nanotechnology: What’s the Big Deal? portable table-top exhibits were developed by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) for the NISE Network.
Everyone loves NanoDays festivities, but how do you keep people excited about nano the rest of the year? Join us to discover the innovative ways your colleagues are introducing nano outside of NanoDays! We’ll learn how partners are incorporating nano into nature detective activities, take-home workbooks shared at public events such as minor league baseball games, and exciting flash mobs. Come and learn some new ways to present the smallest science!
This hour long classroom program introduces nano science and nanotechnology as a leading, cutting edge science with an emphasis on nano in nature, health, energy and the environment. The class includes a PowerPoint presentation, three minute video, nine self-guided activities set up as “stations” around the classroom along with a concluding, teacher facilitated class discussion. This program was created for the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry’s (OMSI) Outreach Unit.
